With its new Edge series, the company seems to be getting ready to make a comeback into the Indian smartphone market.

Motorola recently launched its concept flagship, the RAZR 2020. Now it has launched a much more affordable flagship series, the Edge series that is targetted at mass-market consumers. Key features of the devices include a 3D curved edge display, a hole-punch camera and 5G support.

The company has not launched any of its mass-market flagship smartphones in India, since the Z2. However, with its new Edge series, the company seems to be getting ready to make a comeback into the Indian smartphone market. Keep in mind it had been launching Z-series smartphones globally, the latest being the Z5, back in January.

Motorola Edge Plus is priced at $999 (approximately Rs 76,400) for the sole 12GB RAM/256GB storage variant.. It will be made available starting May 14 via Verizon in the US in Smoky Sangria and Thunder Grey colour options. Motorola Edge, on the other hand, will be made available in Solar Black and Midnight Magenta colour options this summer, which is when the company will also be revealing the price. The company has not revealed when the product will be made available in international markets like India.
